Today there are only two countries, Afghanistan and Pakistan, that have the wild Polio virus with just over 100 cases reported worldwide in 2015. The number of reported cases in 2016 is expected to drop to around 30 cases worldwide.

Enjoy a complimentary wine tasting or glass of wine at the RoxyAnn Tasting Room.
“This place is a rare find for all the right reasons! Easily one of the coolest Airbnbs that I’ve stayed at. I arrived on a Friday night just in time for the live band and food truck by the tasting room. Barbara provided all the information and made sure everything was taken care of during my short stay. Make sure you get there early to taste some wine (the Malbec was my favorite). The staff are super friendly and the room is filled with witty wine quotes. Will definitely stay here again next time! PS. do NOT leave this place without getting a few bottles of wine =).”
Featured Artist — September 2016
Vera Melnyk is our featured artist this month. Stop by the tasting room for a glass of wine to view her mosaic artwork.
I came upon mosaic work serendipitously. Several years ago I began with mosaic tables and vases for my yard. As I began to experiment with materials and techniques, my mosaics began to evolve. I started producing fine art mosaics in 2014. Early motifs included leaves, flowers, the sun and moon, plus other shapes that I saw in nature. With time, making mosaics became more about the materials and less about the subject matter. They became more organic and abstract, which I think suited the materials well. Now when I create a mosaic, I spend more time thinking about the texture and color of the materials as well as their juxtaposition than the final design. It is very difficult work at times, requiring precision and dexterity. It can be tough on the hands. The materials have many shapes and textures. They include stone, minerals, glass and marble. The materials come from all over the world. The Smalti comes from Italy. Some stones come from as far away as Turkey, Afghanistan and Pakistan. The rocks are gathered from all over the world including the US as well as Italy, Peru and other parts of Central and South America. When designing a composition I rely on the feel of the stone in addition to it’s appearance. The process is very organic and many of my designs are not planned in advance. I hope you enjoy viewing them.
Claret Awarded GOLD Medal from Sunset Magazine
RoxyAnn Winery 2012 Claret was an award winner at Sunset Magazine’s 5th Annual International Wine Competition!
This year, Sunset had over 3,000 entries from the United States and around the world. The judging, held at their new Cornerstone campus on April 25 and 26, was conducted by 50 of the most respected wine experts in the West, led by honorary chairs Joel Peterson, founder and winemaker, Ravenswood; and Sara Schneider, Sunset’s Wine Editor.
It’s Me (you know, the Winemaker Dude) from the winery bunker. Since the Harvest has hit it kind of feels like a bunker. Bright light BAD!
Ok, we have (as of today) brought in all of the white grapes for the 2016! Yea! We still need to ferment them out, but they can no longer go bad in the vineyard. Also in the winery is the 2016 vintage of Pinot Noir. It is fermenting along nicely, thank you, with aromas of wild strawberry, cherries, and a little black raspberry.
Tomorrow we will go out into vineyard in search of the wily grape sample. They are slow so very catchable! No, we’ll take samples from the blocks of the Vineyard that are the closest to being ripe, and through analytical data and tasting decide which will be the next fruit to come into the winery.
This year we will be making another vintage of Founders Reserve (Port), and a “real” vintage of Yumbrusco. We still have the Sherry project aging away gracefully in some barrels from last year, and we’re getting anxious to see how it will turn out. But patience is a virtue, so we will have to wait another. I thought of any other new projects to make everyone miserable this year so we will have to go with these.
So far it looks to be another excellent Vintage and one without any real smoke! Of course now that I said that we won’t be able to see across the parking lot from the smoke tomorrow morning!!
Well, Take care all, and if you come by the Winery and see a group of zombies working in the back, that’s us! But do be careful we might bite! Ha!
